    Verdict - Lovers of romantic stories will like this film

    Half GirlfriendWatch trailerRelease date : May 19, 2017



    While seeing this film one point struck me outright and that was about the proper casting of the lead couple which resulted in their suitability for the role. Arjun Kapoor looks very much the the rural Bihari boy from an economically backward family while Shraddha Kapoor is convincing as the rich and sophisticated lass. Some have found Arjun's Bihari accent off key but I found it OK. Shraddha singing English songs while strumming a guitar looked believable alright.
    The Chetan Bhagat novel is targeted towards the younger crowd and others who like romantic stories and I found that on the whole director Mohit Suri has done full justice to the story except that the second half is a little slow for comfort.
    The plot is essentially a love story of a purely Hindi speaking poor Bihari boy and a rich stylish girl as they get close and separate a number of times in the film till the happy ending. The location changes from  a small town in Bihar to a top college in New Delhi before finally resting at swanky homes and night clubs of New York. A kind of serendipity which some sections of the audience will love while others will consider it far fetched.
    Director Mohit Suri has done a good job and the romantics among us will find the goings on interesting. All scenes are shot well but those who are not romantic may find the plot development boring. The film has a non linear narrative which I personally find unnatural. After all why have a caption saying " 6 months earlier " and lose the natural flow and sequence of the story?
    Acting by both Arjun and Shraddha is good and  matches the requirement of melodrama designed for the film. The actor playing Arjun's friend has done a good job.
